setting
Index was once a small and close-knit community, but the town located on the western side of Washington state has grown in recent years beyond anyone's expectations. It is the ideal place for those who work in Seattle but can't afford the city's high real estate prices, and for others the natural beauty attracts them to the town. And Index truly is a beautiful place - surrounded by thick evergreen trees, tall mountains and glistening rivers and lakes. While weather is typically rainy with overcast skies even this does nothing to take away from the beauty of the town, and it is only highlighted further when the heavy snow graces the town and caps the mountains in winter. To many, Index would seem like a paradise. And yet lurking beneath this visual beauty there is more to this town than anyone might ever imagine...

Current Time in Index, Washington:
rules
PLAYBYS: Sims from the games Sims 2, 3 and 4 are used to visually represent player’s original characters (no characters from within the franchise are allowed). But, you do not need these games to join and roleplay! If you wish, you can post a thread in our out of character / general forum and list as many physical details about your character as you wish. The members of Index will happily try and make a character for you, and you can choose which one you feel best fits your vision.

AVATARS: Avatars should display your characters face clearly and should be at least 200 pixels tall, and 200 pixels wide.

THREADING & POSTING: When threading with multiple characters, it is important that you post only when it is your turn. This can be acheived by taking note of who has posted before you, and remember you are to always post after them. If you were the thread starter, then it is your turn after the final person has joined your thread.

When creating a thread you are required to place a tag before the title. Here are a list of types of thread you can create and how to tag each one:

[Open] Anyone is welcome to join your thread, with no limit on the number of characters.
[Open - #] Anyone is welcome to join your thread, but there is a limit on the number of characters who can join. Replace the # with how many extra characters you will allow to join your thread.
[Private] Only specific characters can join your thread.
[Closed] This tag should be used for threads that only involve your character.

ACTIVITY: To keep threads moving, people are encouraged to post within three days when it is their turn. If you do not post within three days, and you have not asked people to wait for you, it is possible you will be skipped. Keep in mind this is just a suggestion. While we'd love for everyone to be active every day, we understand that real life and other hobbies are just as important, if not more. We want you to be active because you want to be, not because a rule is telling you to be.

MATURITY RATING: Public threads should all be PG. If roleplayers above the age of 18 wish to post content that could be could be considered graphic then it should be hidden from view using the [hide] [/hide] code, which will enable only those in the threads and administrators to view the content.

[Private] About Last Night...

Thread Details

River View Apartments | Cold, misty rain | Noon


OOC Message
This thread takes place the day after the Halloween party at Bennigan's



It wasn't a suicide attempt, but last night ended with what probably looked like one.  I'd went home and drank... I really don't remember how much JD I actually had but it was enough to make me feel like I'd met the wrong end of a baseball bat.  I also took three allergy pills, um.. Benadryl.  I wanted knocked the fuck out.  I didn't want to remember anything that had happened.  God, it started out like it was going to be so fucking great, man.  I had hoped that when I woke up, I would just realize it was a bad dream.  Maybe I hadn't even went to the goddamn party.  But I saw the dirt and leaves on my pants when I woke up.  My eyes were so dry that it hurt to look around, and combined with the light sensitivity of the hangover I'd created I was a train wreck.  My mouth was dry, so much that I thought my tongue was going to crack but the thought of swallowing anything, including water, just the simple thought, made me want to wretch.  I needed to make sense of it, if it was possible.  Maybe I could confront Gio himself, but from what I saw, I wasn't even sure... I wasn't sure what the hell I was seeing.  That was just the thing.  It wasn't a dream, but maybe it wasn't real.  Maybe that weirdo I told off managed to spike my drink.  Or maybe it was Joe.  Would Joe do that to me?  Apparently I didn't know anyone.  

After a shower, I found some black jeans, a grey tank and a grey hoodie, I was slummin' it today and if anyone had a problem with it they could just suck my ass.  I found my phone, pulled up my texts and wrote to Gabe:


Gabe
Hey... I really need to talk to you.  Something bad happened last night.  Can I come over?

The decision had been made. I ran a hand through my hair that was slowly feeling greasier every time I did it, and took one last glance at the ad I’d put up on Facebook.

I’d spend the night watching the video on my phone, over and over again, trying to work out what it meant. Not just what the video was, no, my brain was hurting over trying to comprehend that, but what it meant for me. One thing was for sure, and that was that this town was crazier than I’d ever fucking imagined. It had gone beyond it being appealing or quirky. What I’d seen the night before… I was man enough to admit that shit did scare me, and it wasn’t anything I wanted to get wrapped up in. Hugs (or pugs), not drugs, right? Well, I might not have known what the shit I’d witnessed was but I knew I wanted the alternative.

I was so wrapped up in thoughts that I started a little at the text. When I saw it was from Michelle, I didn’t know how to feel. Relieved – that she couldn’t be too badly hurt? Confused – did she know that I’d seen what happened? And mostly… distrustful. How long had she been involved in this shit? I sent a quick, short text back and waited for her to come over. I didn’t bother changing out of my tired skinnies and worn vest. I just went over and put the coffee pot on.

There was a knock on the door and I made my way over to it, not only not knowing how to react or what to do, but hating that fact so damn much.  Quote Begin Hey. Quote End  I said when I opened the door, tone steely at first, but then I saw what a mess Michelle was. It affected me, and that annoyed me. She was obviously on a totally different page to me and yet I still cared for her. As usual though, it didn’t fucking mirror back at me.  Quote Begin Come in… Quote End  I held the door open and closed it behind her, watching her every movement. I might have cared about her, but I didn’t know if I trusted Michelle any more.  Quote Begin So… Quote End  I said, as if I didn’t look as much like warmed up crap as she did.  Quote Begin What’s up? Last time I saw you, you went to talk to that friend of yours, and then.. nada. Quote End  I said, shrugging. I went over into the lounge area and sat on the couch, stretching out. Would she cave? Would she tell me? And what would she tell me? I sat and watched Michelle, waiting.

I kept my hands shoved in my pockets, and I searched him. Fuck this could go bad. What I wanted to ask him just might sound like an accusation, and… well it could be. Maybe that would be the tell-tale sign. If he got overly defensive, then I would start getting suspicious. I hated that I was even thinking this about Gabe, too, but after last night I didn’t want to trust anyone unitl I knew what actually happened.

Yeah, that.. Listen, I said as I kicked off my shoes. It’s pretty fuzzy to me. Do you remember if I left my drink? I mean.. Could someone have put some shit in my drink? I finally pulled the left shoe off. I walked a few steps further into the apartment before I stopped. I didn’t feel.. as welcome as usual. Maybe it was my own paranoia. There was something off about the mood, not just in what he had said, which also had it’s own insinuation. I wasn’t off in the bushes making out with the ex roomie, if that’s what you think. Fuck, had the circumstances been a little different, I’d have welcomed the slight hint at jealousy. Confirmation that he was in fact, into me “like that”. But my mind wasn’t worried about that game. I stood, awkwardly for a moment, looking at the couch, wondering just how comfortable I should get, since I would probably either get accusations that I was crazy, or that I was hiding something. He would probably just think it was some poor excuse and attempt at sympathy for something something “wrong”. Fuck, I probably would too. This shit was like a bad TV show on CW. Finally I went and had a seat, crossing my legs in front of me.

Man, I don’t know if someone was trying some fucked up Halloween stunt with LSD and props or what, but I saw shit last night.

I frowned, and shook my head.  Quote Begin No… I can’t remember you putting it anywhere and I’m pretty sure I’d have stopped you if you tried. Quote End  I said, finding it difficult to keep the bite out of my tone. Was this just an attempt at a convenient excuse to explain away what had happened? After what I’d seen the night before, anything could be possible.  Quote Begin Sure. Quote End  I said to her comment about Gio, and shrugged.

Quote Begin You saw shit? Quote End  I echoed, and looked Michelle over properly. She did look as shit as I felt. I felt myself soften and sighed. Perhaps she was just as in the dark about this stuff as I was, but I didn’t know for sure and my brain felt like someone’d shoved a gun against my temple and pulled the trigger. Quote Begin Are you okay? Quote End  I asked, fixing a gaze on her,  Quote Begin If you weren’t.. I hope you’d tell me. Quote End  I still felt so confused as to whether I should open up about what I’d seen, or wait. I thought it over, rubbing a finger over the stubble growing on my chin, and raised an eyebrow at Michelle.  Quote Begin So, what did you actually see last night? Quote End  I asked, putting off the decision a while longer.

I was sure seeing your ex-roommate/lover turn into a wolf in front of your eyes was new territory for most, but I felt completely stupid about everything right now. Nothing was easy. I mean… Was Gabe pissed with me? Did he have a reason to be? Sure I kind of left him, but was it wrong that I still cared about Gio’s well being? Even though I wasn’t interested in playing his game anymore I didn’t want him to go through what I’d seen last night. Oh, fuck, and here I was thinking about it as if it was all completely real. I simply sighed, and tried my best to read him, but I had to bite my tongue. It was pissing me off that I felt like I was a teenager being scolded for being out too late. But something about him changed. I could see the expression on his face melt into something softer.

I’m not really sure, Gabe, I mean.. I can’t even begin to explain how confusing everything is right now. Little intrusive thoughts had began surfacing about Gio, about his last disappearance and how when I did see him he had just changed so much. His mood, his… activities I mean he would just wander off for no reason or just explode in a tantrum for the smallest things.

I uh… I mean shit you can’t laugh, because I’m hoping it was just.. me being so drunk that I don’t even know what was a dream and what really happened. But um… My hair fell in front of my face, some of it still wet, the dry parts wavy and tangled. I pulled a tie from my pocket and gathered my hair in a ponytail, then my hands fell in my lap.

I saw Gio turn into a wolf. I turned now to watch his reaction, to see just how ludicrous I sounded.
